Julia Rossiter

Founder of Matriark
& Personal Trainer

Playing sports is in my blood. My earliest memories involve hockey, volleyball and swimming. I made a commitment to myself about 10 years ago to start lifting weights regularly. The world of CrossFit quickly caught my eye in 2019. I’ve never looked back. I’m a Certified Personal Trainer, CrossFit L1 coach and ALP Candidate who enjoys working with open-minded women who want to get strong AF.

I was also a licensed practical nurse in another life. It’s one of the reasons why I became a personal trainer and started Matriark. Nursing showed me firsthand how disconnected preventative and primary health is for people. There are many barriers to health and fitness. I want to change that. 

The Matriark community supports others, stands up for what they believe in, and gives back to those who need it most. 

I’m also all about balance. I want to give you options for workouts so that you can live your best life every day (most days, we’re all human 🙂).

Morgan Rozon

Co-Owner of Matriark
 Registered Holistic Nutritionist

I grew up doing competitive gymnastics and although I loved it, it took a toll on me. After many injuries and a lack of balance in my life, I took a long break from sports and fitness. Once I found it again and started lifting weights I was amazed at how much better I felt in my body (and my mind too!).

I got into coaching through CrossFit and continued to pursue further knowledge through various certifications such as NCCP Weightlifting, Eat to Perform, and Precision Nutrition, and most recently a Diploma in Holistic Nutrition.

Shifting my focus towards nutrition coaching was one of the most exciting changes I made and is truly my passion. I love helping busy humans find simple and sustainable ways to reach their health and fitness goals. I thrive on collaboration and love to create deep and meaningful relationships with my clients and community.

I’m born & raised in Victoria, BC, and in my downtime, I love hiking with my husband and highly energetic dog Lea, spending time figuring out how to keep plants alive, and paddle boarding on Thetis Lake with my pals.

Together We are Matriark 

We believe in working on the stuff that matters beyond the gym: empowering women to live their most authentic selves, eating and cooking food we love, moving our bodies in a way that sparks joy, and dismantling the patriarchy and ideas of what we "should" be doing when it comes to our health.

We’re ready to empower women, trans and non-binary folks in and outside of the gym and the kitchen.
